Amazon FBA Sellers Wanted To Review Daily Book Arbitrage List
Share on: 
fb share twitter share gplus share more share

Hi Warriors!


I am an Amazon FBA seller specializing in selling used books. I generate a huge list of books every day that have a minimum of 100% ROI, and have a best seller rank (BSR) in the top 1%.


There is no way I can buy every book on my list, and I would like to launch a daily list service to benefit other FBA sellers who are interested. If you are interested and you would like to see a sample of my daily list, just contact me here and I will send you a list for free. My goal is to get your feedback so that I can tweak my list to be sure it provides the value that FBA sellers would be seeking in such a service.


Here is an example of the type of arbitrage deals you find on my daily list:


Link to Amazon Page - 495913073
Title - The Human Record: Sources of Global History, Volume I: To 1500
Buy Price - $4.80
Shipping - $3.99
Target Sell Price - $34 - $49
Approximate Gross Profit - $25 - $40
Approximate Net Profit After Fees - $18 - $30
Current Sales Rank - 30,231
Avg Sales Rank - 105,635


Camel Chart

Pretty interesting. Do you have to do all the shipping and packaging yourself as well? I would like more information

jfrombk, Currently I do all my own labeling, packing and shipping because I am a self-admitted control freak and I want to make extra certain that my books are graded properly. However, there are companies that will do this for you for $1 - $2 per book, and I have gotten a couple of recommendations from other FBA sellers for ones that do a good job.


That being said, I buy about 100 books a week, and I can have them labeled, packed and ready to ship in to Amazon in about 3 hours, which I don't think is too awful.


Thanks for your question.


BJ

torrehardy, The criteria for my list is currently:


Minimum of 100% ROI
Maximum of 150,000 Amazon Best Seller Rank
Good sales rank history and no big dips on the Camel chart


I find that following this criteria when I buy allows me to sell most of the books I buy in less than 30 days.


It has been suggested to me that I start a second list with BSR between 150,000 and 350,000. I am considering that because it would allow me to find a whole lot more books, and a BSR of 350,000 is still in the top 1% of Amazon best sellers.


I use this list myself to buy books from third party sellers on Amazon and then sell them back on Amazon through FBA.


Please let me know if you have any other questions.


Thanks!
BJ

bjallen, sent me a complimentary list yesterday and I have to say it is awesome. All 10 books are winners and I will purchase a few of them today. If I can get a list like this daily, this will easily triple the "book flipping" portion of my business, not to mention all the time I will save in research.

If you want to do book arbitrage, I highly reccomend her list!

Hi Sonnyboy. Thanks for your interest. We have not finalized pricing yet, but typically arbitrage lists will sell at a price point between $99 and $200 per month. We would also offer a daily price which would be between 8 and 10 dollars for the day, for people who just want to try the list or who don't buy books every single day.


Just so you know how much value is in this list, the small list of 10 that I sent out yesterday had over $526 in potential profit, and potentially double that if you were aggressive and bought every single copy available of each book.


I am thinking of sending out a list of 20 books per day and limiting the number of subscribers. We are still tweaking it, which is why I asked for feedback on this thread.


Thanks!
BJ

HI EasySt,


You would have thought I would have it up and running by now wouldn't you???


Well, I sent out several of my daily lists toward the end of last year only to realize that most of the people did not understand what to do with them, so I have been hard at work writing up a guide that will show people how to buy and flip the books on my lists. It has taken way longer than it should have - most things do. But it is almost ready.


If you are still interested, I will send you a copy when it is done.


Thanks!
BJ

hi bjallen,

this sounds really interesting.

I'm interested in the guide and (probably) the list.

I clicked your GUmroad link for the free download but the page no longer exists.

Hi rssmith. Yes Gumroad shut me down with no warning and refunded all of my customers - basically took my money. I asked for an explanation, but they said they couldn't tell me. I did some research and found that this is how they roll. So I have rolled on and set up (temporarily) on another platform. You can find the guide and list at http://goo.gl/M56DQq


They won't let me give away the guide for free, so if you do not want to pay the 90 cents, you can drop me your email and I will send it right off to you. I should have all of this set up on my own website by early next week. Then, hopefully nobody can arbitrarily shut my business down with no reason - but then again...


Thanks for your interest and your patience!


BJ

Hi All,


Well, at loooonnnggg last - my WSO on Amazon Book Arbitrage is ready for review. Please contact me here on this thread or PM me if you would like to get a sneak preview of the WSO in return for providing a review on the WSO thread when it goes live. The sales page isn't ready yet but I hope to have it done within 48 hours. Reviewers must have at least 30 posts, and some knowledge or experience with Amazon FBA. Thanks Warriors!!

With this list do you give examples where to purchase books or just best sellers?

So which is it? You can't buy all the books on your wonderful list? Or you don't have enough books on your magic list and you need a bigger list??

Not joking... Books sell at that price and much much higher all day long. I know this because I sell them.


At the time that post was written, that was the going price range for that particular book. The price has since dropped, as book prices will do over the course of 8 months.


Are you an Amazon seller?

It is absolutely true that I can't buy all the books on my wonderful list.


It is also true that I provide a wonderful list to other book sellers, and as they have had success, the demand for more books on that list has grown.


So I am always looking for more books to put on my wonderful list so that my customers can have more books to buy and flip.


It's.... wonderful.
